John, in the last 2 weeks or so, I have been getting the same basic messages. At times they read a little different than yours but was wondering myself what was happpening. I've never had these until just recently. Maybe someone will explain. Pete

pete i cleared the cookies history, temp internet files, did the disk defrag and disk clean up and it started working okay, so one of the things took care of the problems.

pete, the problem came back. :(
so i contacted Dell, since i got a service plan with new laptop, and let them fix the problem.
on internet options, advanced tab, push restore factory settings, is what had to happen, something was telling something to not let me in.

Thanks John, I am still having a problem from time to time, so I will just have to run it down I guess.

Pete that fix worked for a while as well, sol then i went to tools, options, security, and added as a trusted site and it started working again. as it is now. so maybe between the two of us we will figure it out.

Thanks John, I recently installed some new software and this could be a problem with one of the drivers, so microsoft says. Will let you know if I come up with anything definitive, Pete

Hey Pete the problem continued, so back to Dell. We ended up down loading firefox @ and guess what.

Internet explorer would not open but firefox did without a problem.
